James Clarke, Oxford, England
Accredited: 27th November 2012

James Clarke was born in 1971, and from a very early age was enjoying the magical sights and smells of the wonderful Victorian brewery. Fifth generation of the founder, James joined the Hook Norton Brewery in 1991 as Second Brewer, progressing to Head Brewer in 1999 and Managing Director in 2004. James is an avid beer lover and advocate, travelling on business or even the very occasional holiday, he loves nothing more than tasting new beers and matching them with local cuisine. He has greatly expanded the Hook Norton beer portfolio, adding beers ranging from Stouts to IPA's, and much in between. His pride and passion for all things beer is second to none, and he is delighted with his Sommelier Accreditation.
